Cities of Childhood. Italian Colonie of the 1930s. De MARTINO Stefano & WALL Alex (compiled by)

Cities of Childhood.

Published: London Architectural Association,
Date: 1988.
Description: 88 pp, incl many photographs, transpararencies, blue-prints of many colonies, biographies of the architects, some with photos, timeline giving historical context, bibliography. Short contribution by Paolozzi. Large-format wraps. 30x28. Very good copy.
Notes: The Italian Colonie originated in the mid-19th century as health-giving communal welfare-centres. They were much developed under the Fascists, including new purpose-built ensembles, many by modernist architects, "with some 3,800 buildings, spread along the seashore or on mountain passes, some no more than a shelter, others resembling little cities..." A fine informative catalogue, published for an exhibition at the AA. The best English language source.
